ground here in washington. as we negotiate a path back from the fiscal cliff, we should also recognize when democrats and republicans agree. we agree taxes should not go up for anyone making less than $250,000 a year. 97% of small businesses and 98% of middle-class families would benefit from that. with common ground in sight, we should be able to act today to avert the fiscal cliff for millions of families and businesses. even if we disagree on whether to extend tax breaks for the wealthiest 2% of americans, we should agree to hold the middle class harmless and do it today, do it mao. a single vote in the house of representatives would get the job done now. unfortunately, there's one obstacle standing between congress and a compromise: grover norquist. for years, no norquist has bulld lawmakers. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and even worse for the congress. so i was pleased to see republicans in congress distance themselves from norquist this week. i appreciate that etch have. and so do the american people. and i'm sure their constituents do. several rep
amazed that kids could do 12 pushups these days. meanwhile, week before we fall off the fiscal cliff at the conclusion of this year, lawmakers in washington are reaching out to the people who actually run businesses for help. molly henneberg joins us live from the white house today to tell us about the meeting at casablanca. >> good morning. any president has the bully pulpit and president obama intends to use it more and more, the white house says, to get across his message, his solution on the fiscal cliff. so today he will meet with small business owners here at the white house. tomorrow he will meet with middle class americans. and on friday, he'll make the public case for extending tax cuts on the middle class and raising taxes on families making more than $250,000 when he visits a business in pen opinion. the president's press secretary says on this highly charged issue, quote, public communication is essential. >> some of the lessons that we learned over the last four years have to do with always being mindful of the fact that engaging the public on these sometimes chewy polic

everyone of one fact. this congress is one vote away from avoiding a fiscal cliff for middle-class families and small businesses. we can solve the greatest economic emergency facing the nation today if only the house would consent the senate-passed bill freezing -- freezing tax rates. as thomas jefferson said, "we should not put off tomorrow what we can do today." our legislation would give economic certainty to the middle class, protect important tax reductions for families and businesses, and restore balance by asking the most fortunate among us to pay a little extra to reduce the debt. also, the only bill with a chance of being signed into law by president obama. speaker boehner once again urges us to pass the house bill, extending tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires. the senate has already consider that bill and we rejected it on a bipartisan basis. for the speaker to say, bring it up, we are behalf. it was loaded down in this congress. -- it was voted down in this congress. the president has spoken. he will not sign until the mortgages our future to pay for handouts. i hope ho
the proposal the president has put forward to solve the fiscal cliff raises taxes on a million small businesses who employ 25% of the work force and an accounting firm has done a study has said if the president's proposal went into effect which is to raise taxes on the small businesses out there that it would cost us over 700,000 jobs and reduce take-home pay by 2% and reduce economic growth by 1.3%. what the president is proposing to do would hurt jobs and the economy, which is again, i ironic in that the president's only solution to solve our fiscal cliff issue is to raise taxes. in 2010, we had the same debate. the president said you shouldn't raise taxes in the middle of a weak economy. at the time economic growth was 2.4 through the first three-quarters. this year, 2012, that same number is 1.8%. the economy is weaker and slower today than it was in 2010 when the president said you shouldn't raise taxes in the middle of a weak economy. we believe that the president has to lead on this issue. it can't be about raising taxes on people who create jobs in this economy if it is about jobs and t

to get wealthy. do the 80% do particularly badly on the fiscal cliff? >> i would answer your question slightly different. i got to live the american dream. built a business from nothing to real size by providing what the consumer and the businessman wanted. i'm scared to death that america is losing that ability. we see it in the banking business where the american banking environment is much tougher to deal with than even the uk, british environment which is much more friendly to business. i'm afraid that as the government turns the screws on the large banks, they're going to destroy the regional and small banks which really drive the american economy. >> it's a tough sentence, and i know that you understand the small guys, because you work with them to become large guys. and then they're loyal to you forever. >> correct. >> i'm sure the same thing is going to happen in london. i want to thank vernon hill. remember, "it's fans, not customers." this is the right book for the right time.

budget on sustainable fiscal path." coburn says too much of the fiscal cliff debate focused on increasing taxes when cuts and reform are needed. >> we can take all the revenue and it wouldn't the problem. the real answer is as we have a demographic shift that is coming. to entitlement program that increased benefit without increasing the taxes to pay for entitlement programs. they are interrupt essentially. >> that is a key point made by two former congressman chris cox and bill averager in "wall street journal" editorial who wrote "the actual liabilities of the federal government including social security, medicare and federal employees future retirement benefit exceed $86 trillion." the second ranking senate democrat is for addressing entitlements but not now. >> medicare and medicaid insure one-third of all americans. they represent about 20% of our budget. and they are a real challenge to us. because untouched unamended medicare will run out of money in 12 years. that is scary. >> though as the negotiations continue, durbin does suggest that obamacare is on the table. >> the only perf
